Cuban Comedy

Pánfilo habla con Obama

A post on Generation Y that went up yesterday starts like this:
14ymedio, Yoani Sanchez, Generation Y, Havana, 20 March 2016 – He arrives on the Island on Palm Sunday, will attend a baseball game, and has already spoken by phone with the most popular humorist on the Island. Barack Obama’s plane has not yet landed and already he has stolen the hearts of a legion of admirers through a series of symbols. A meal in a paladar (a private restaurant), a phrase from José Martí in his major speech, and a mention of Cachita, the Virgin of Charity of Cobre, would complete his upcoming gestures of enchantment.
That paragraph's tone is light. The rest of the post is similar, but Yoani still manages to weave in some serious jabs at the mob bosses who are running Cuba now.
